The sole purpose of HEP is to assist migrant and seasonal farmworkers and members of their immediate family to obtain a General Educational Development (GED) diploma that meets the guidelines for high school equivalency.
After completion of the GED, HEP helps participants with placement options for improved employment, vocational training, military service, or admittance into an institution of higher education (IHE) or other post-secondary education.
